Parking

 

Section 51.207 of the Texas Education Code allows the University of Texas at Dallas to restrict parking on our campus to only those vehicles with a parking permit or pass from the University, and to issue citations to vehicles that do not display a current permit or pass. It also requires UT Dallas to enforce Texas vehicle inspection laws.

General Parking Permit Information

Buying a Permit

Parking permits are available to all current UT Dallas students, faculty, and staff. You can buy a permit directly from the Bursar Office (SSB 2.300) or you can buy your permit online and have it mailed directly to you. If you buy online, please print out your receipt and use it as a temporary 30-day parking pass.

Students can purchase Evening Orange, Gold, Green, or Extended parking permits. Students living in University Housing can purchase either University Village Apartments or University Commons Residence Halls parking permits, depending on where they live. Faculty and staff can purchase Purple, Orange, Evening Orange, Gold, Green, or Extended parking permits. Handicap parking permits are also available (see below.)

Students have from the first day of class until Census Day to buy a parking permit; Faculty and staff have until their first pay date. Your parking permit is registered to you, but you can transfer it among any vehicles that you own. If your permit is lost, you will need to buy a new one at the current cost; If your permit is stolen, we will replace it once we get a copy of your sworn police statement regarding the theft.

If you are a student and you withdraw from classes before Census Day, you can turn in your parking permit and ask for a pro-rated refund on that permit. If you are a faculty/staff member who is terminated from UT Dallas, you can turn in your parking permit and ask for a pro-rated refund. In both cases, any outstanding balance will be deducted from your refund.

When you purchase a Purple, Orange, Evening Orange, Gold, Green, or Extended parking permit for your car, you can request one additional free Open-Air Vehicle or Motorcycle permit of the same type.

You can upgrade your parking permit by turning in your permit in person to the Bursar Office (SSB 2.300) and paying the price difference between the one you are returning and the upgraded permit that you want to buy.

Handicap Permit

To use one of the Handicap parking spaces on campus, you must already own a State of Texas handicap license plate/hangtag/placard, and you must purchase a UT Dallas handicap permit. When purchasing your permit:

  • If you use a hangtag/placard, please present a copy of TxDMV Form VTR-214 (PDF) —the same one you would have filed with the County Tax Assessor-Collector.
  • If you use a license plate, including a special one such as a Disabled Veterans plate or a Purple Heart plate, please present a copy of the tax receipt for your plate.

If handicap spaces are not available, anyone with a Disabled Veterans plate, a Purple Heart plate, or a state-issued handicap plate/hangtag/placard, who is registered with the University (permit or visitor pass,) may park in any available non-reserved parking space or metered parking space at no additional cost.

Pay-By-Space

Pay-By-Space Kiosk

There are over 300 Pay-by-Space cash-less metered parking spaces on campus. To use one of these spaces, just remember your parking space number or stall number, go up to the nearest payment kiosk (“LUKE Machine”), tap any key to wake it up, then follow its instructions. You have three ways to pay:

  • Swipe your credit card or debit card through the kiosk.
  • Enter a Department Coupon Code.
  • If you already have an account with the PayByPhone service, you can pay through their web site; through their Android™, BlackBerry™, or iPhone® app; or by calling 888.450.7275. Their normal services fees will apply.

Please remember to keep your receipt; It shows the time when your meter expires. If your time has not yet expired, and you paid via credit/debit card or Department Coupon Code, you can return to the kiosk and add more time. If you used PayByPhone, you can add more time remotely, and even set up the service to send you an SMS five minutes before your time expires.

Department Coupon Code

Please contact us if your department would like us to create a coupon code that you can hand out to your guests for use at Pay-By-Space metered parking spaces. We can create:

  • A single code.
  • A new code every month, which expires at the end of each month.
  • A code just for a special event, which lasts only for the duration of the event, or only for a limited number of transactions.

Once a month, we’ll send you a report of how often your code was used, and charge your department. Charges go directly to your cost center.

Visitor Pass

If you are a visitor to our campus, you can get a one-day parking pass from the Visitor Center and University Book Store or from UT Dallas Police when you bring in a photo ID. This type of pass is only good for the day that it’s been issued, and will allow you to park in both Green and Extended parking spaces.

If you own a current parking permit for UT Arlington or UT Southwestern Medical Center students, faculty, or staff, please bring in your receipt for that permit to the Bursar Office (SSB 2.300) and we’ll give you a permit that will allow you to park in both Green and Extended parking spaces.

If you are visiting as the guest of a student residing in the University Village Apartments, you can request a parking pass from their leasing office. This type of pass can be issued to last for more than one day, and will allow you to park in University Village Apartments parking spaces.

Likewise, if you are visiting as the guest of a student residing in the University Commons Residence Halls, you can request a multi-day parking pass from their leasing office, which will allow you to park in University Commons Residence Halls parking spaces.

Citations

You can pay citations online or at the Bursar Office (SSB 2.300).

If you receive a citation, you will have 14 days to pay it. After 14 days, a $10 penalty will be added, and another $10 penalty will be added every month until it gets paid. Students with unpaid citations will not be able to register for classes and their grade records will not be released. Faculty and staff with unpaid citations will have their records marked, will have their parking permit revoked, and any renumerations owed them when they separate from the University will be blocked.

When you collect three or more unpaid citations, a warning notice will be placed on your vehicle. If you still have unpaid citations on the fourth business day after you received your notice, your vehicle will be impounded if it’s parked on campus. You will not be able to get it back until all your citations are cleared and you pay the impound fee.

Appealing Citations

Students, faculty, and staff can appeal citations online.

Visitors can appeal citations online, or at the Bursar Office (SSB 2.300), or by contacting Parking (972.883.2344 / park@utdallas.edu).

You have 14 days to appeal a citation after you receive it. If your appeal is rejected, your will then have 14 days to pay it.
